#1527: Stella's Personal Billboard

Jul 04, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, how do you attract a guy who’s whizzing by at 60 miles per hour? Stella is renting a highway billboard for a personal ad and, to make a questionable idea even worse, is turning to Tom and Ray for design help. Elsewhere, after having his brake pedal sink to the floor twice in stop-and-go traffic, Chris thinks it’s time to either figure out what’s wrong, or update his life insurance; deli salesman Frank may have to part with a couple of spiral cut hams to find out why his car is making noise; and, why does Mabel’s Subaru sound like she’s torturing a chihuahua when starts it? All this, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
